Biography by Contactmusic.com

Freeheld - Clip

Laurel Hester and Stacie Andree couldn't be more different. While the former is a highly respected New Jersey police detective with decades of experience in the force, the latter is 20 years younger with less of an established career. Hester's always been cautious about relationships due to her struggles with privacy, but she had no idea how much her life would be thrust into the spotlight when she fell for Andree. The couple had barely settled down in beautiful home, wistfully contemplating their future dreams when Hester was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. Not only did Andree face losing the love of her life, but also her home and the life they had built together. Straight couples could get married and leave their spouse with their pension benefits after they'd passed, but this privilege is denied to Hester and Andree simply because they are a same-sex couple. With the support of gay Jewish activist named Steven Goldstein, they put their all into achieving equal rights for everyone.

Laurel Hester is a high-ranking New Jersey police detective who is hugely respected at work. While she never fails to earn recognition for her police services, she also manages to catch the eye of a young woman almost 20 years her senior. Stacie Andree's career is less high-flying but the pair find themselves connecting over their shared idyllic fantasies of a home and true love. However, their dreams are about to be shattered when Hester is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, but she wishes to soften the blow by passing on her pension benefits to her Andree, so that she can afford to continue living in their new home. However, under Ocean County laws this is not possible for domestic partners - only married couples, and this is pre-marriage equality reforms. The couple implore the New Jersey Board of Chosen Freeholders to help sort this issue out, but as Hester grows ever weaker, it seems they're running out of time. With the help of Hester's supportive colleague Dane Wells and a gay Jewish activist named Steven Goldstein (the founder of Garden State Equality), they set out to defend the rights of same-sex couples across the state.

Mark Hamill Jessica Alba Aaron Paul Ellen Page

Mark Hamill surprised and delighted Star Wars diehards on Thursday evening in Los Angeles, when he appeared at a live reading of The Empire Strikes Back at the Ace Hotel Theatre.

Forget "True Detective" Season 2, Ellen Page And Kate Mara's Parody Is Where It's At

Kate Mara Ellen Page Vince Vaughn

Ellen Page and Kate Mara are two of Hollywood’s favourite sweethearts, but we love them even more (if that’s even possible) after their True Detective parody for Funny or Die. Possibly inspired by the news from earlier this week that Vince Vaughn and Collin Farrell will be joining the HBO hit, the starlets filmed their own take on the show. It’s called Tiny Detectives and it’s exactly what it sounds like.

Ellen Page
If Ellen Page doesn't star in True Detective, HBO should definitely consider a spinoff, based on Tiny Detective.

The premise: since people were unhappy with the new True Detective cast, HBO have decided to re-cast. But with Page at 5’1’’ and Mara not exactly towering at 5’2’’, their characters have had to take a very… creative approach to detective work. For one, they can’t see the evidence half the time. Also, they sometimes have to sit on magazines to see over the dashboard of their cop car. And I won’t spoil the rest, but you won’t make it past the 1:10 mark without laughing, that’s for sure. Basically, go watch the video right now. You know, just in case you needed a reminder of why these two are awesome. Or if you have an afternoon or so, you could just dive straight into a pit of three-minute comedy videos. No judgement.

X-men: Days Of Future Past Review


Continuing to be the most original and resonant of the Marvel superhero franchises, the X-men return in the capable hands of director Bryan Singer, who again stirs plenty of meaty subtext beneath the thrilling action. He also has one of the best casts imaginable, including Oscar winners, cinema royalty, rising stars and matinee idols.

Best of all, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) returns to the fold after two less-than-thrilling solo adventures. He's at the centre of everything here, as Professor X and Magneto (Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen) ask Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) to send Wolverine's consciousness back 50 years to 1973. His mission is to prevent Dr Trask (Peter Dinklage) from inventing mutant-hunting robots, because they will go out of control and cause a present-day dystopia in which mutants and anyone who sympathises with them are killed. But Wolverine's biggest task will be to get the then-feuding Professor X and Magneto (James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender) to work together to keep renegade mutant Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) from making everything worse.

Thankfully, Simon Kinberg's script doesn't worry too much about the whole time-travel thing, shrugging off dubious logic by keeping the focus on the characters. And there are a lot of people to keep an eye on, which makes the film sometimes feel a bit crowded and leaves some characters barely on-screen at all (blink and you'll miss Anna Paquin's Rogue). The best newbie is Evan Peters' Quicksilver, who gets the film's most entertaining sequence as he races around tweaking an action sequence frame by frame. Other set-pieces are grippingly darker, and some don't quite make sense (why does Magneto feel the need to levitate an entire stadium?).

Touchy Feely Review


After a couple of gimmicky transgressive comedies (Humpday and Your Sister's Sister), writer-director Lynn Shelton takes a more observant approach this time. So even if, as before, the script never quite fills in the gaps in the story, it at least knowingly recreates relational awkwardness in a remarkably sensitive way. And the characters are almost eerily easy to identify with.

The centre of the story is Abby (Rosemarie DeWitt), who is debating whether she should move in with her rebound boyfriend (Scoot McNairy). This sparks her to think about her whole life, and she ends up recoiling at the idea of touching human flesh. Which is a problem since she's a massage therapist. By contrast, her dentist brother Paul (Josh Pais) believes he might have the ability to heal his patients, so he consults Abby's reiki-practitioner colleague (Alison Janney) for advice. Meanwhile, Paul's daughter Jenny (Ellen Page) is terrified to tell her father that she hates working as his assistant. And she's even more afraid to admit that she has a crush on her aunt's boyfriend.

Along the way, Abby, Paul and Jenny are all pushed into a turning point in their lives by an unexpected change in circumstances, which of course feels a bit contrived. But the film's real strength is in the messy connection between family members who have issues with themselves and each other, all of which are expressed through clumsy conversations and uncomfortable physicality. As insecure siblings, DeWitt and Pais are terrific in complex roles that draw on the actors' nervous energy. But only Pais and McNairy are genuinely likeable: men who haven't a clue what to do. By contrast, the always terrific Page and Janney have much less-developed roles.
